Jazz Vocalist Lezlie Harrison is her own personal renaissance. Her constant state of evolution and growth brings with it, gifts for those those paying attention. As a vocalist both bold and subtle, her vulnerability attends to the fragile matters of our collective human affairs while her optimistic momentum inspires us to rise above any tribulation to rejoice.
Be it Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Soul ,The American Song Form, original compositions, or any song in any form, Ms. Harrison will imbue it her distinctive stamp and make a very personal delivery. On the planet's premier Jazz radio station WBGO, her voice as a regular curator and presenter reveals the love and pride with which she regards America's classical music. Hyper-active on the New York and global Jazz scenes, Lezlie is also along with the late Dale Fitzgerald and trumpeter Roy Hargrove, a member of the triumvirate responsible for launching New York's world-renowned Jazz Gallery. On occasion, Lezlie lends her regal presence to the stage as an actress, bringing to those endeavors the same sense of organic elegance that she brought to the runways and photo studios of Paris some years ago. By way of her childhood in New York and North Carolina or her maturation in New York, Boston, or on stages throughout Asia, Russia, Europe, and elsewhere, Ms Lezlie Harrison shows aesthetic evidence that she is a recipient of the lessons of dignity, integrity, and grace bestowed upon her by her elders and fine tuned by her own history.
